  • Clemens' Primary Team is Boston

    Roger Clemens pitched for Boston from 1984-1996. Most of his awards were achieved as a member of the Boston Red Sox and his best seasons were with the Sox.

    I'm sure the Hall of Fame (if he's ever elected) will see his time with the Yankees as more significant.
    46 wins to match last year's total

      Please explain why. He was in the WS in 1999,2000, and 2001, but despite my values, his regular seasons with the Red Sox were much better.

        Best value would have to be his Red Sox years but it also the Red Sox that thought Clemens was washed up and didn't resign him.

        Will be interesting to see which hat Clemens will wear if he is elected to the HOF. My guess is the Yankees where he won the championships.

          Its always tough, situations like this. I think a higher pct of people will associate him with Boston, but a ton of people (like me) will think of him as a Yankee.

          I know when Reggie Jackson had to go into the hall and decide what hat to wear, I met him at a card show, and i told him that while he had been with many teams, he will always be a Yankee to the fans, and you could see he really thought about it and shook his head yes. I would love to see Clemens go into the hall (if he ever does now) as a Yankee, but going in as a Red Sox wouldnt surprise me.

          Ultimately the Hall can choose. Gary Carter went in as an Expo because the Hall wanted to finally get an Expo in there. To me, he is a Met.

            The decision for several years now rests in the hands of the hall of fame, and if elected, my best guess is that it will be as a RedSox. Although I agree it is possible that he would go in as a Yankee.

              In what sense is this topic a "current event"?

                Don't you mean Yankee fans?

                  I would have to think that the fact he won two World Series titles with the Yankees would be the clincher. That's why I said what I did.

                    Not particularly. I think of him as a Yankee, and have for several years. However, I didn't watch him as a member of the Red Sox, so my opinion must be biased.

                      Clemens played for the Red Sox for the bulk of his career. Like someone already said, he reached many individiual milestones in Boston. Three WS rings can not erase that, so IMO he should go in as a Red Sox player.

                        I would say he is a RedSox, He became a star in Boston and spent most of his time in Boston. He was only on the Yanks for a few years. So he won a couple of rings in New York, Wade Boggs won a championship with the Yankees but he is thought of as a RedSock and rightfully so. Clemens also won 2 Cy Youngs as a Blue Jays. Is there a question if he is a Blue Jay? The Hall is the one who says what hat he goes in with anyway and I think they will say (if he gets in) that his hat will have a B on it.

                          Although Clemens won a ws with the Yankees, none of his ten best seasons were in that uniform. He should definitely wear a Red Sox cap.

                          Out of Gary Carter's six best seasons, 5 came with the Expos. I cannot see putting a Mets cap on him just because the NY media is so much more of a presence than the Montreal media.

                            Clemens' primary team is Steroids University!

                              This is almost certainly a moot point.
